From Row Swap to Quilt Top
I used all the rows in my quilt top. Seven of them make up the center of the quilt top. They are sewn together straight without any sashings. I then added a dark 3 inch border. Then I added a light colored 9 inch border. I took one of the rows apart and used the squares as corners in the border. (You can't really see them in the picture. You can see a little bit of one of them in the top picture.) Then I added another 3 inch border of the same dark leaf fabric. I plan to use the same dark leaf fabric for the binding if I have enough of it. If not, I'm going to use a different harvest fabric which has a black background.
I'm really happy with how it turned out. All the rows work together so nicely. And it goes well with the wall color in the room too. Now I just need to decide how I'm going to quilt it...
